We were given an opportunity to chat with Ubisoft Montreal's Eric Baillargeon who serves as Lead AI and Gameplay Programmer on Watch Dogs about their forthcoming game.
Among a host of topics, Eric confirmed that the game's companion app system would also work with PC and that unlike many other open-world games, Watch Dogs would be launching at the same time on PC as its console counterparts.
"Yeah, we aim to release in November 2013, on all current-gen and PC," Eric told us. "For next-gen platforms, the dates are still to be communicated, but yes it’s being built at the same time by the same team in Montreal, so expect it to have the same kind of delivery for every platform."
He also talked about multiplayer (including co-op), the game's notoriety system, side-quests, tech and how they arrived at choosing Chicago as the base for their game.
